So, like a lot of people, I've been caught up in the excitement about concurrent programming with functional languages like Erlang and Scala. Both Scala and Erlang employ the actor model, rather than threads, for concurrent programming. Innovations around the actor model aren't limited to just languages; the actor model is also accessible on Java-based actor frameworks like Kilim...
